Thank you for your interest in Home Shoot Home. As the premier location company for the San Gabriel Valley, we focus solely on Pasadena, South Pasadena, Altadena and the surrounding foothill communities. We have a very loyal homeowner base who love working with a neighborhood-based location company.
To know if your home is a candidate for Home Shoot Home, we need to determine that your home is located in the area we represent. If so, we’ll drive by your home to make sure the streets and neighborhood can accommodate the equipment vehicles that are needed for filming.
If you meet these initial qualifications, we’ll set up an appointment to professionally photograph your home. You will receive a copy of the photos in the “start up” package we will send to you.
Your name/address will never be posted online. We will market your home to location scouts, production companies and directors. When someone in interested in seeing your home, we will contact you to see if you’re interested and available for the proposed dates. From there, a location scout will, most likely, want to come to your house in order to shoot their own specific photos. If there is further interest, there will be another visit or two by the director/producers.
When your home is selected, the production company will come back one more time with the various department heads. This visit is to make decisions about where they are filming and what equipment they will need in order to film the project. After this final visit, we will draft an agreement. The next step is the filming itself. We always send a site representative to be present during all aspects of the production. Their job is to insure that all goes as planned and agreed upon. They are also there to watch over your home so you don’t have to be present the whole time.
The production company will provide a security deposit that we hold onto. The security deposit would only be used if there is any damage resulting from the production. The production company will also name you as an “additional insured” on their policy. This releases you from any liability in the unlikely event that someone is injured during the filming at your home.
Once the job has concluded, you will be billed by Home Shoot Home for 25% of the fee you receive from the production company.
Home Shoot Home has been in business since 2003 and has grown tremendously. We would be happy to provide you with references of homeowners on the site and/or location scouts that call us on a regular basis.
If you’re interested in pursuing this opportunity, please email us a couple of photos of your home; one of the front of the house and one of a room that shows your house at its best. Also send us your exact address so that we can start the process. We look forward to working together.
